Duck Donuts and Sanderling Resort have announced that they are launching reservations for a one-of-a-kind experience for the summer: a donut-themed guest room packed with donut-themed experiences, called The Sweet Escape. Just in time for National Donut Day on June 4, The Sweet Escape will be available May 28-June 30.
Guests checking into The Sweet Escape at the AAA Four Diamond-rated, beachfront Sanderling Resort will experience all things donuts, including an entryway lined in donut wallpaper, a bedroom area decked out in donut bedding and Duck Donuts-branded pillowcases, a collection of donut throw pillows for added comfort, Duck Donuts artwork will don the walls, donut seating and floor pillows to lounge around, rainbow sprinkle curtains, donut pool floats, Duck Donuts & Sanderling Resort-branded beach towels and a beachy welcome tote lined with Duck Donut goodies to take home.
The room will also be filled with dozens of freshly made Duck Donuts conveniently set throughout the room for easy access. It also includes an in-room coffee bar stocked with Duck Donuts coffee and donut decorating kits. Guests can also schedule a donut wake-up call through a dedicated donut concierge for customized samplings from Duck Donuts’ made-to-order menu.
The Sweet Escape experience also includes a taste of Duck Donuts history: a behind-the-scenes tour of one of the original Duck Donut stores in Duck, North Carolina, located just a few miles from Sanderling Resort.
“As the country begins to recover from an exceptionally difficult period and people begin returning to travel, our team knew we needed to make this summer extra special,” says Geoff Young, managing director at Sanderling Resort. “Part of what makes the Outer Banks such a unique destination is our local community and the experiences they create for those who visit – and that includes Duck Donuts. Sanderling is proud to be based in the hometown of the cult-favorite Duck Donuts brand and is excited to incorporate their story into ours. Our Sweet Escape program will definitely add that ‘something extra’ to make this summer a summer to remember.”
“We are delighted to kick off the celebration to one of our most anticipated and beloved holidays, National Donut Day, with our dreamy Sanderling Resort partnership,” says Russ DiGilio, Duck Donuts founder. “Donut lovers are in for a real treat this summer and we are thrilled to play a sweet role in helping to deliver smiles to those who are vacationing to the place where it all began for Duck Donuts, the Outer Banks.”
Sanderling Resort and Duck Donuts will also hold a social media giveaway from June 22-30. One winner will enjoy a four-night stay at Sanderling Resort and a tote bag with Duck Donuts perks, including coupons for free donuts, plus cups, koozies and more. Entries will be accepted on the @duckdonuts and @sanderlingresort Instagram pages.
Reservations for The Sweet Escape can be made starting now, with rates starting at $599 per night with a three-night minimum stay.
